Margerie Glacier in Glacier Bay National Park, a World Heritage site. This kayaker was camping in the park and was about 300 yards from the glacier when a building size piece of ice over 200 feet high calved creating quite an exciting ride. The kayakers name is Jack and he was spending 8 weeks paddling around Southeast Alaska. Quite a trip! His story along with one of my photos is in the July 2012 edition of Alaska Magazine.
